    You will have to edit the code of the form to make credit card as the default, to do this get the full source code by following the steps below:

    1. Open your form in Jotform
    2. Select 'Setup & Embed' tab then click on 'Embed Form'
    3. In the Embed Form wizard get the full source code by choosing 'Source' from the option.

    In the source code you should see the following:

    <input type="radio" class="paymentTypeRadios" id="input_6_paymentType_credit" name="q6_donationType[paymentType]" value="credit">

    <input type="radio" class="paymentTypeRadios" id="input_6_paymentType_express" name="q6_donationType[paymentType]" checked="checked" value="express">

    As you can see by default the radio field for Paypal with value "express" is marked as checked="checked" simply remove this line from the input field and add it to radio field with the value of credit instead. After making the changes the code for the payment radio fields should look like this:

    <input type="radio" class="paymentTypeRadios" id="input_6_paymentType_credit" name="q6_donationType[paymentType]"  checked="checked" value="credit">

    <input type="radio" class="paymentTypeRadios" id="input_6_paymentType_express" name="q6_donationType[paymentType]"  value="express">

    Hope this helps, let us know if you have questions.

    Thanks so much for the info.

    I have one other question.
    I also want to update the font, size, color of the subscribed text font. How do I do that in the code?

    Sorry, I was not clear. I was referring to the subscription details. As you can see in this screenshot, the subscription text appears in small fonts and italics. Some donors complained to me that they can barely read it. I would like to be able to modify the subscription details font, color, size

    Issue #2 (Subscription details does not show in email alerts, only the name show in the alert)
    Recently I created an email alert and selected “Donation Type” as field
    When the alert is triggered, I received the email. It included the subscription Name but the subscription details was missing – meaning I couldn’t tell the amount the donor selected.


    Thanks so much
    Keep up the excellent support.
